A blog for intellectuals

I commented on a blog :
Intellectuals will definitely love ur blog. :)

The person replied :
Thank you Chandrika……. What about your own opinion…..?

I am not at all intelligent. :-D
Did I like or dislike the blog?

Better career

“Hey buddy! Will you treat my kids for free?” A single guy who didn’t even have a girl friend asked a medical student.
“First you have the kids.” He teased back.
“Till you become a doctor I will have.”

Which career option is better; earn while learn or study for a long period?

Electronic diary

“I guess I am too lazy or may be short of innovative ideas.” A person who is keenly interested in blogging and hasn’t started blogging told me.

I encouraged her, “Once you start writing, innovative ideas will be coming automatically as mind is full of them. Blogging is a sort of electronic diary.”

Do you agree or disagree with the last line?

Thank you

Not many, infact none, whose blog I comment sends a thank you note. I truly appreciate :)

I received this as a reply to my thanks letter from my recent blog buddy who wrote a comment on my blog.

Are we really busy to say thanks or pose to be busy?

I wrote to Mr. 'Y' a voyager :
The best thing on your social networking site is the world map showing 178 cities in 36 countries which you have visited till now. Hope you will soon visit the rest of the world.

He replied :
I hope so too.. to visit alteast most part of the world before I die..;)) I haven't step my foot in Central and South America, Australia, large part of Africa so much places to visit..

I have seen only two countries, India and US. And if I count the cities then it will hardly be 25. Oho! I forget to tell that I have also seen Dubai airport where I changed my flight during my US trip. :-)

How many countries and cities you have visited?

“Phew!!! Only 33 friends!” A school going kid exclaimed on seeing the total number of my friends on a social networking site.

A bunch of posers or a few genuine friends; what do you want?

A car hit me

As I was walking on the side of the road without footpath, I was hit by something from behind. Before I could realise anything what had happened it hit me again. I hurriedly get aside and was surprised to see the culprit as a car in which a young driver and two senior citizens were sitting. The driver and senior citizens had no facial expressions of apology. Seeing this I shouted that he could not drive properly. The driver grinned and frowns on my face increased in size and number. Before I could say more, I overheard a comment by a passer by woman, “Give him a tight slap.”

Can a slap make him realise his mistake?

After having lunch, a heavy one, I decided to eat kulfi to beat the heat. I ordered one. I realised my mistake as first bite of kulfi reached my stomach. It was rich and thick with lots of dry fruits. Half eaten my stomach seemed to be filled.

Should I throw it in dustbin and waste an eatable or should I eat it completely even if later on it causes gastric problems?

“Your sense of humour is superb.” I appreciated Mr. ‘R’ when he cracked a self created joke. A smile appeared on his face on hearing his appreciation. I, who have some knowledge of psychology said, “In general, the persons who are witty have a very painful and sorrowful life and they use their sense of humour as an escape from the darkness of their lives. I hope this is not true in your case.”

He became silent and didn’t respond. He sunk into deep thoughts.

What did silence mean; I correctly interpreted about his life or I made such an irrelevant statement that he preferred to ignore me?

Search engine

A blogger commented somewhere on net :

I search ‘……..’ my pen name on a search engine and results shows 31234+ results :-) and ‘………’ my original name on the same search engine shows only one result. :-(

Do you think one's pen name is more popular?

On a social networking site, the profile photo of a surgeon showed his head covered with cap, mouth and nose with mask. The spectacles hid his eyes to some extent. It seemed that this photo was taken just before entering the operation theatre. :-D

On social networking site, in a profile photo one should be dressed up informally or formally according to one’s profession?
